The Institute of Horticulture (IoH) is to appoint its first chief executive officer (CEO). The move came following an in-depth look at the institute’s set-up, spearheaded by its president David Miller.
He said: “There was a serious need to look at the IoH and its relationships with its members and the industry. We have set up a number of strategies and decided that we need someone to oversee what we have in mind.”
Initially the job will be under a fixed-term, part-time contract and the salary will be up to £30,000. The CEO will be responsible for developing and improving the professional status of the members and the profile of the institute.
The CEO will replace the current IoH secretary Angela Clarke, who is due to retire in March next year. Miller said:“She has been a real brick and has done some wonderful work for us.”
